Reservation trouble

Here's a recent interview of Arjun Singh done by Karan Thapar. I've always admired Karan Thapar's guts in asking questions bluntly and exposing politicians to what they are - dumb-witted hypocrites.

Karan aur Arjun

Here he exposes Arjun Singh and makes a mockery of the minister. But then who has the last laugh. Arjun Singh and the congress will now go back to the OBCs and claim that they have now resolved all their problems - what if the people who might need some support are not even in a position to get primary education; what if the only people who are going to benefit from this are going to be the creamy layer of the OBCs who don't really deserve these reservations.

At one point, he says this is the first time that the entire parliament has unanimously passed an amendment. That was a nice joke dude. Which political party would want to be known as Anti-OBC? Every Tom, Dick and Harry is going to vote in favor of the amendment. Even if you had said 100% reservations for OBCs and SC/STs, the amendment would probably have gone through.

It pains me to see the state of affairs in my country. All this makes me think for a moment of running away from it all. But then that's surely not the way to go. We need to do something about this. But then what? What options do we have of combatting this?

For once there are people fighting the wrong. It's time we support them in their battle, spread the word about the wrong being done and if possible join them in their fight against the amendment. If we don't join them in their battle, there will be no one joining you when you are wronged. If you feel, a wrong has been done, it's time to join the fight.
